Chapter 2: A Hobbesian universe.


The conservative philosopher Hobbes describes a world which needs a central authority, a society without this was like a body without a head.  Society, according to Hobbes, needs a king, a Pope or a God.  Without a central organizing authority society could not stand, became sick and fought itself.  Hobbes, like the liberal philosopher Locke has some truth to his thesis.  My strong, hyperactive cousins needed a head to their kingdom.  Our parents were off finding themselves, I think; be it as free wheeling Republicans, unchained from Protestant self-effacement or as feminist divorceés experimenting with sexual freedom and encounter groups.
